Anybody have a clue what's going on? Which component should I BZ?
Have you attempted to create a new user to see if
a new account
experiences the same issue? In my experience,
such failures are the result of a memory flaw, either hardware or a
program that is overwriting system memory some how due to a bad
malloc/free frame. It need not be any of the programs you are currently
running, because such an error only manifests when the affected system
routine or memory is accessed again.
